So I am sure that I'm not the only one who thought that the way they started Raw with the brawl between Lesnar and Samoa Joe was exactly what Raw needed. But then there's no follow up??? They should have had them sporadically brawling all over the backstage area, the parking lot, etc.  To make things worse, they have a double count out draw in the main event? What the hell were they thinking? The crowd got so quiet that you could hear a mouse fart to end a show with such a hot start.

They did have Joe talk about it later.  And I disagree.  I am fine with slowing things down.  If we saw them three more times in the show, it’s overkill.  The finish was what I expected.  They didn’t want the Hardys to look bad losing, so they tried to keep both teams strong.  Hopefully it’s being done so that they can bring them back together later.

Bayley seems to have regressed back to her meek/naive persona that we saw when she first started in NXT.   After all her accomplishments in NXT as champion, and even as RAW champion, why would creative regress her character like that?  You would think that someone whose accomplishments include winning the first ever women's iron match, in addition to being NXT and RAW champion, wouldn't be afraid to use a kendo stick, for crying out loud.

I couldn’t agree with you more.  I don’t understand what in the blue hell they are trying to do with her, booking wise.

What is the logic of sending heels to ringside to help break up Joe and Brock?  I noticed Anderson and Gallows in the melee.  Why would heels like them care who is fighting?

It wasn’t just heels, faces were there too.  The (WWE) logic is that Kurt Angle, their boss, sent them out and they had to do what they were told.

On Raw, again they showed Cass beaten up. And while they were all there, in the background, two guys walked across the screen. They kind of looked like The Revival. Am I seeing things, or am I on a track?

It has been the Revival pretty much every time.  WWE booking is usually not very deep so it appears that is the direction that the company is going in here.

I saw that Nick Gage was back visiting at the 2300 Arena over the weekend.  This obviously means he's out of jail so does he plan on returning to CZW in the near future?

He got out last November is memory serves, so he has been available for a while.  I can’t say either way, but he is almost 37 years old.  He hasn’t been brought back yet.  I would say it’s 50/50 at best.
